In short the standard dog walkers insurance is “I’m fine with dog walking when something is happening which should make us both happy, but don’t leave when they come home because I’m too happy to stay”.
We have no problem with a dog walking insurance policy that allows us to “walk away” from a situation if our relationship is deteriorating significantly.
We have never had such an event and although we have had a few situations recently where we have taken our dog off the walk, we have decided that we will not be taking the dog off of walks unless we are happy about the situation. I know many people will say “but my dog doesn’t want to walk anymore!” but that’s not true. When dogs don’t want to walk a couple of times a week it is because we have not allowed the dog to walk the walk. The dog walks when he wants to.
In general if you have had a couple of incidents with your dog where he stops having a good relationship with you the dog walking policy could not benefit you in any way.
I hope to hear back from you.
(I also recommend that everyone read this letter and do their own homework before walking their dog while in a state that issues its own insurance. Please note that many states do not issue their own dog walker insurance, nor do many walkers have any say in the issue. Also please check out my dog walking insurance review and policies here.).
Is there anything new that I should read?
I just saw that a site was looking for potential pet walkers for a month. It was really good advice I have never forgotten it.I have a very close knit dog walking group, which includes many people with children. We are always looking for qualified, qualified and committed pet walker.We do very little dog walking with dogs that are sick or are injured. We usually stay home for the day and walk our dog, or maybe go for a walk around town.The only dogs that we walk often are those that I have adopted from the pound. I know it isn’t right for everyone, but I want to be able to do it as well as possible.I think that someone that is a good dog walker and person has a huge advantage over someone that is only a poor dog walker and someone with no dog walking experience.I have no doubt that there are plenty of good dog walkers out there that are very honest and willing to learn.I have been in many locations
